    Default Music player on lock screen?

    So I'm wondering if anyone has an idea on how or if it is possible to get the music player in the lockscreen? I came from the Evo 4g and when I workout, I listen to music. And with Evo the music player shows up on the lockscreen with it's widget functions. I haven't been able to find out if the SGSIII has this option.
    Thanks for the help.

    I use the amazon player and it shows up on the lock screen, volume buttons work, can skip forward, reverse and pause... haven't loaded any music locally yet as I stream if I can.

    if you dont use any security feature to lock your phone, if you have your music playing, it shows up in the notification bar and you can pull that down from the lock screen

    Thanks for the news. This is an interesting work around. I will have to try it.

    You can download a widget for music on go locker or (one that is more popular) widget locker. Either one should work. Go locker is free though so I suggest trying that one first

    I use WIDGET LOCKER, and it is very useful. It is a paid app, but it is one of the few I deemed worthy of paying for. You can put ANY widget on your lock screen at virtually ANY size. Plus you can have a bunch of different types of lock screens to choose from (water drop is interesting, but doesn't pack enough on for me).

    I put a widget for GMusic (streaming music), MortPlayer (audiobooks), Mixzing (SD music when connection is flaky) and PocketCasts (for podcasts) all on my lock screen without issue.

    Just something to check out.
